2014 Nordica Fire Arrow 84 Pro EVO


Pros: 7/8th the performance of the EDT for 3/4 the price

Cons: Would like to have seen a better binding integration


For 2013 the FA84 was one of the best hard snow biased mid 80mm skis on the market but the $1299 weeded out a good amount of people who would find please from such a great ski. For 2014 Nordica has added the Fire Arrow 84 Pro to the collection and a steal of a price of $899. While the Pro does not have the Nth degree of power that the EDT has, the $400 savings is justified. Nordica was able to drop the price by removing the carbon fiber bands from the EDT and also going with a less expensive Vist binding compared to the Marker that comes on the EDT. 


On snow feel is still very good on the Pro especially at slower to medium speeds where the EDT could feel sluggish. I found limitations only at the highest of speeds but for the price, that limitation is understood. With the snub nose design and full camber, the 84 Pro reacted extremely responsive edge to edge for an 84 wide ski, more akin to a narrower ski.
